Local Voices
Dear Editor: I’m writing this letter to express our sincere gratitude to Mayor Linda Elam and City Manager Randy Robertson of the City of Mt. Juliet, and the West Wilson Utility District for assistance that was provided to us at the City of Lebanon Wastewater Treatment Plant. The City of Lebanon is in the middle of a major expansion of our wastewater treatment plant. An undertaking of this magnitude is expensive and any delay we experience can add significantly to the cost of the project. We recently found ourselves in a situation that required the removal of heavy sludge and grit from the bottom of an existing concrete tank. We determined that the quickest and most practical way to achieve this was by using a vactor truck. Unfortunately, the City of Lebanon’s vactor truck was unavailable for use as it was undergoing some repair and would not be available for as long as two weeks. Billy Dranes, Treatment Plant Manager, contacted Shannon Joyner and explained our situation and asked if Mt. To the Editor: Tomorrow, October 1, 2009, the citizens of Wilson County will have an opportunity to make history and shape the future of our county by casting their VOTE FOR the referendum on a wheel tax to be levied on vehicles registered in Wilson County. The referendum calls for a $25.00 wheel tax needed to retire the bonds for the construction of a new Lebanon High School and the purchase of property for a new Watertown High School. Once the bonds are paid off, the $25.00 wheel tax will be removed. This single act of passing a referendum will have a much greater impact than providing the resources to build a school and purchase property for a future school. The benefits to our entire county will be long lasting and far reaching as it will provide an investment in the education of the children of Wilson County for generations and create a climate for economic growth and expansion throughout our county. First, allow me to address the benefits to the education of our youth. Wilson County Schools are the envy of other schools throughout middle Tennessee and our students continue to excel and compete with other students enrolled in much better funded programs around the state. Our students rank among the best of the best academically, athletically, and in state and national competitions. Hundreds Juliet Public Works would be able to assist us. He immediately dispatched the Mt. Juliet vactor truck to the Lebanon wastewater plant. Brandon Ambrose and Jason Deadmon spent all or part of 4 separate days working with us to get the job done and we were able to avoid any delays to the construction project. Also, recently an influent line was broken which is an odd size and we would have been down a couple of days waiting for the part if Kelly at the West Wilson Utility District did not have the repair sleeve on his shelf. This is the second time he has helped us out. The city “boundaries” blur in a time of need. We hope to reciprocate their kindness in the future. Sincerely, Philip Craighead Mayor of families move into our county each year just for the opportunity to enroll their children in our school system. With the continued growth in student population and an old dilapidated facility, we are now faced with a critical need for a new Lebanon High School. Our current facility at Lebanon High School is marginal at best and is beyond the point of renovation. Our students are forced to endure substandard conditions and yet expected to achieve a world-class education. There is little or no debate about the need for a new Lebanon High School, which will provide our children with an opportunity to learn and grow in a clean and safe environment conducive to teaching and learning. If for no other reason, it is a moral obligation we owe our children and future generations who will benefit from this investment. After all is said and done, our children are our greatest legacy and the heirs and beneficiaries of all we can give them. Secondly, permit me to address the economic growth and expansion that often follows as a result of providing a quality educational program. Businesses and industry evaluate future sites for expansion based on the quality of life the new location can provide for their employees and their families.

MJ skate park reopens after recent, risky vandalsim
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Skaters in Mt. Juliet can once again enjoy the skate park at Charlie Daniels Park this week now that the locks are off the door and the park is open again after being closed for a week due to vandalism. Mt. Juliet Assistant Parks Director Rocky Lee said Monday that the skate park reopened that day. He said ramps inside the skate park had been unhinged and moved, which was unsafe for skaters utilizing the park as well as an insurance liability for the City. Lee said American Ramp Company designed the park, and that obviously moving the ramps is a danger since the park was designed a certain way. He added that parks officials had warned skaters that with “any bad behavior” the park would be locked up for a week. And that’s exactly what happened when the vandalism occurred. “They know we mean business,” Lee said. “And I’d say 98 percent of them are great kids – it’s just the rest of them that cause trouble. And probably most of the time they are kids from out of town, because we don’t recognize them.” The skate park, also known as The Crowe’s Nest, is open during regular park hours, closing at 8 p.m. During the school year the skate park is open after school, 4 – 8 p.m. For more information on the skate park call 615758-6522.

Local UPS store unveils online printing solution
Combines convenience with personalized customer service
The UPS Store® #2279, located at 4636 Lebanon Pike, is now offering online printing, providing around-the-clock access to upload documents for print services from the convenience of your home or office. The UPS Store customers now have the ability to submit their documents on a secure, easy-to-use site, which walks users through the process, step-by-step. Unlike competitors’ online printing platforms, The UPS Store solution provides a one-page view with a pull down, accordion-style menu, eliminating the need for the user to navigate back and forth when choosing printing options. The user simply logs onto http://www., uploads a new document or multiple documents, selects printing options (paper, binding, etc.), which are applied in real time, and chooses The UPS StoreHermitage #2279 for their printing and pickup location, as well as the desired date and time for completion. After proofing and previewing the job, payment is taken online, making pick up at Center #2279 quick and easy. Each job is assigned a number, allowing the customer to track the print job from beginning to end. Furthermore, since each user creates a profile, print jobs can be saved up to 90 days in a virtual “filing cabinet” for future reprints, if desired. “As our customers make the transition to the online world, we need to make that transition as well, to help make their lives easier,” said Mike Primm, The UPS Store Owner. “Whether the customer is working from home or is on the road, print services are available with nothing more than an Internet connection and a few minutes time.” The UPS Store online printing platform supports more than ten commonly used program files, including Microsoft® Publisher, Adobe® Illustrator and Corel® Word Perfect, so whether you are printing the monthly PTA newsletter or your company’s 250-page annual report, The UPS Store will make your printed materials look polished and professional. “I know my customers’ time is precious,” added Primm. “The UPS Store online printing solution gives them control over when and how they print. And, as with all of our products and services, I can assure the highest level of customer service.” In addition to digital printing, black-and-white and color duplications, and document finishing (binding, laminating, etc.), The UPS Store-Hermitage #2279 offers domestic and international shipping; fullservice packing; notary; printing services (full color business cards, letterhead, rubber stamps, etc.); custom crating and shipping for large items (grandfather clocks, motorcycles, etc.); mailbox and postal services; office and packaging supplies; and more. About The UPS Store With approximately 4,800 locations in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc.® network comprises the world’s largest franchise system of retail shipping, postal, document and business service centers.

Bears runaway with victory over Kenwood: 42-0
Through four games to start the season, Mt. Juliet High had collected four wins by an average margin of 4.5 points per contest. The Golden Bears finally enjoyed a little breathing room Friday, Sept. 25 at home with a runaway 42-0 victory over visiting Kenwood High from Clarksville. Senior quarterback Reed Gurchiek completed 6of-9 passing attempts for 131 yards and three touchdowns as the Bears improved to 50 heading into this Friday’s District 9AAA showdown with Lebanon. Gurchiek tossed a pair of first quarter TD passes to wideout Vaughn Cornelia -- the first one went for 29 yards and ended an 81-yard scoring march on the opening possession of the game The second was a 10yarder and came at the 3:52 mark of the first period. Senior Brady Earnhardt scored on a five-yard run in the second quarter while junior Colt Carver added a 12-yard touchdown jaunt later in the second as Mt. Juliet mounted a 28-0 lead at intermission. Kaceem Street hauled in a 29-yard scoring pass from Gurchiek with 8:32 to go in the third period and Jake Parker broke the goal line with an eight yard run at the 4:22 mark of the third quarter. Tyler Emmetts was a perfect 6-for-6 on PATs. All told, nine different Mt. Juliet backs carried the ball as the Bears ran for 230 yards on 37 attempts. Halfback Chris Bazile led the ground game with 54 yards on four carries.

Page 10, The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet, September 30, 2009 DAVIS, from Page 4 programs are ranked at the very top when CEO’s look at investing their company’s resources in relocating their business and/or industry to a new area. Often the first and lasting impression that CEO’s take away after visiting Wilson County is that of an old, dilapidated and outdated school building at Lebanon High School. Once they see our building, they are not interested in exploring any further, and begin to look elsewhere to relocate their company. The result is lost jobs, lost revenues and lost opportunities for Wilson County. In addition property values either decline or do not appreciate at a rate equivalent to surrounding counties, which will to continue to compound an already stagnate local economy. Tomorrow, October 1, 2009, you will have the opportunity to make an investment in the children of Wilson County and provide a strong infrastructure for future economic development for our entire county. Seldom will you have such an opportunity and I urge you to join with me and exercise your right to make this important decision by VOTING FOR the referendum. A VOTE FOR the referendum is a VOTE FOR THE CHILDREN OF WILSON COUNTY. Mike Davis Director of Schools Wilson County Schools

He said there was some “misunderstanding” stemming from a report of the meeting in another local newspaper, and that he wanted the citizens of Mt. Juliet to know he had not tried to give himself insurance since he had it as the retired chief of police. An ordinance to amend the FY 2009/2010 budget for the police department to purchase three vehicles and transfer money from TML, paving of the back parking lot at the Codes/Planning building, purchase of property of West Division for the greenway, and transfer of money in the parks and recreation department was unanimously approved.

Reflections from an Old Friend
Deer Season + Vehicles = Traffic Crashes
Did you know that each year there are approximately 500,000 deer/auto collisions resulting in over 100 deaths and thousands of injuries? With Wilson County’s growth and the urban sprawl, the deer population is being forced out of the woods and into our neighborhoods and on our roadways. Deer are most likely to come out between the months of November thru January but are apt to come out at anytime of the year, especially this year with all the rain. Deer also tend to come out between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. or early in the morning hours. According to statistics, automobiles make up 61 percent of the animal/deer related crashes, trucks 26 percent, vans 7 percent and tractor trailers 2 percent. But keep in mind, those are only statistics. The following are defensive driving tips for avoiding deer/animal collisions: Be vigilant in the early morning hours, the most active time for deer. Use your high-beam headlights, which reflect in the deer’s eyes, to see the deer better. Slow down and blow your horn with one long blast to frighten the deer away. Brake firmly when you notice a deer in or near your path. Do not swerve. It can confuse the deer about which way to run. It can also cause you to lose control and crash. Be alert and aware at all times. Drive with caution. Always wear your seat belt. Most people killed or injured in deer/animal collisions weren’t wearing seat belts. Look for other deer after one has crossed the road. Deer seldom run alone. Be prepared for anything at anytime and anywhere! In closing, our roadways can be a very dangerous place to travel in the first place and any unexpected obstacles only make the process that more dangerous. So please buckle up, slow down and drive safely. We can’t afford to lose any of our most precious cargo.
